“Celebration is a confrontation, giving attention to the transcendent meaning of one’s actions.” Abraham Joshua Heschel

Have You?

Have you smelled the sun or felt the stars,
touched the moon in the early hours,
stuck your tender toes in salted sand,
watched egrets dance the lake,
listened to waves kissing the beach,
taken a lover with whom to celebrate
these easy joys.
